Each Jan/Feb many Seattle parents start the hunt for summer camps. Finding the camps can sometimes be fun, but filling out the plethora of applications for multiple kids (20 applications for 10 weeks for 2 kids) for educational/fun childcare is inefficient. I had quickly sketched out (on Balsamiq Cloud -a fantastic program to draft new ideas) a potential system that could search for all camps in a parents radius, complete one application for one kid, and pay all at once. I was so excited I pitched it to a friend of mine at dinner last night. Halfway through, she mentioned 6Crickets – a startup here in Seattle that had the same idea to help parents schedule their summer camp programs and classes. It also has the ability to view/schedule with friends. Since I had two spots left out of our 10 weeks of summer, I thought I’d try it. It worked! Not all camps/classes are listed but over 5000+ are. I was quite happy to use 6Crickets and bench my idea.
